I enjoyed the Dead World series of books Dead City Apocalypse of the Dead Flesh Eaters and Mutated by Mr McKinney and liked the sound of this zombie book A zombie outbreak caused by a drugs cartel to assassinate a Senator and scare the American public into submission Our heroes which consist of the Senator an ndercover agent and a Delta Force agent leading a Navy SEAL team have to fight to defeat the cartel s plan and save AmericaSounds like an action horror thriller B movie It is a action horror thriller but is most certainly not a B movie The characters are and demand empathy they on a and empathy They go on as the zombie outbreak causes them to estion their actions and their lives This is especially with regards to the Senators right hand man and the A White Slave in Turkey Book 1 - A BDSM Novel undercover cartel assassinThere are plenty of action seuences and gory zombie encounters They are savage and fierce as they overrun the vesselThis book reminded me of a previous book about a zombie outbreak confined to a vessel That book is Deck Z The Titanic Unsinkable Undead which also rose above it s B movie sounding storyNever judge a book by it s cover or it s blurb on the back If you are a fan of the Dead World series this book will than hold your interest It is a stand alone book and as far as I can tell is not a part of the Dead seriesMight contain some spoilers Joe McKinney is at his best as we follow Secret Service agent Juan Perez as he and his team are assigned to protect a Senator who has not only declared war on the Mexican drug cartels but has made great strides in shutting them down by hitting them in the pocket book Her laws are designed to stop the flow of not only narcotics but the money as well seizing all bank accounts and funds around the world As one would expect this does not go over well with the cartels and her life is now open season as assassination attempts keep those assigned to guard her very busy Agent Perez and his crack team are good at what they do and thus far have thwarted two attempts on her life but now the arrogance of the Senator will put not only her life and the Agent Perez s team in danger but thousands of innocent lives as she decides to thumb her nose at the Cartels by vacationing in Mexico Nothing will distract her and she boards a cruise shipnaware of the assassin that is already on board Juan assigns his best agent to protect the Senator and stays behind because he believes he has 1898 uncovered a conspiracy to kill the Senator Following his instinct he is led to a meat packing company in San Antonio Texas What he discovers is beyond imagination as one particularly brutal Cartel and its leader Ramon Medina have something in mind that will rid the thorn on his side Senator Sutton rid him of his rivals and give him control of the border towns and the drug trade between Mexico and the United States Ramon Medina has a deadly chemical agent that will turn people into flesh eaters The story begins at break neck speed in Washington DC and continues on the cruise ship in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico where the battle is raging and Juan Perez is desperate to get to the Senator and his Agent Fighting and evading the Z s is only part of the story and this is what makes it soniue as the agent Senator and her Aide attempt to flee the horde try to get help and hide from the assassin hot on their heels But really where can you hide when you are on a twenty one story building floating dead in the water in the middle of nowhere and 99% of its occupants are no longer human And of course Joe McKinney does what he does best he humanizes his characters by giving them a backstory to such degree that like or hate them you know them can feel their pain and their reasons for who and what they are even the lessor characters have a spot here that the reader can identify with Battle scenes with the Z s and assassin are aplenty and will satisfy any Z lover but the story behind everything is far frightening The politicians and the Drug Cartels are not that different it s all about power an control with no real winner Kudos to you Mr McKinney for a great adventure that left me drained and gave me nightmares Few authors have that ability you are among them A pure Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, unadulterated guilty pleasure On a cold and stormy weekend what could be better than a book about a Mexican drug cartelnleashing a zombie virus on a cruise ship carrying a vacationing anti crime Senator and her bodyguard The cast of characters includes a beautiful assassin a beautiful secret agent a determined Mexican American crime fighter kids in need of rescue a Delta Force rescue gone wrong and lots and lots and lots of.
